    Yes, it's that timeless question we've all probably pondered at one time or another- what would you have as your final meal on this earth if you were given any option you desired?

    Rules are simple, outline what you'd have for each of the four courses (the fourth being the fish course in between starter and main. I've been watching the Great British Menu and I'm feeling fancy =P), and what you'd have to drink with it, and any other extras you'd care to name. You get to have whatever you want, so be picky!

    I'll start, shall I?

    Starter:
    I have no idea what the name of this dish is, I had it at a tapas restaurant in Spain. It was essentially a small bowl of chorizo sausage, pieces of chicken and potatoes, where the chorizo was first fried with everything else then added and cooked in the same pan, getting flavoured by the chorizo oils. A good whack of seasoning and a sprinkle of parsley over the top, served with home made bread. Pure bliss [=

    Fish Course:
    A good old lobster cocktail- grilled lobster claws and tails, served on little gem lettuce leaves and proper marie rose sauce. Simple, but simply amazing =P

    Main Course:
    Chataeubriand steak (Essentially an extremely tender and flavorful tenderloin) topped with herb butter, served rare with triple-cooked chips (I've tried this recipe for them and they were beyond amazing) and a slice of onion loaf (essentially shredded onion formed into a patty, then battered and fried as you would onion rings).

    Dessert:
    I'm cheating slightly here and having a trio of deserts, simply because I can't possibly decide! Number one would have to be a traditional creme brulee, this would be my only choice if I was really pushed. Second would be a slice of treacle tart, with clotted cream and orange zest on top. Finally I'd have a pot of eton mess- a mix of crushed meringue, macerated strawberries, strawberry compote, and whipped cream.

    So, now it's your turn, odds are you'll be feeling hungry by the time you've finished!

    I hope it's so far away that I've not yet thought of what I would like. Tastes in food change.

    Chicken nuggets and a caramel mcflurry.

    Failing that, a well done steak with peppercorn sauce would do nicely.

    Starter: Onion rings and fries. And bread sauce, even though that's random as hell and doesn't match. I would want to eat bread sauce one last time.

    No fish, ta.

    Main course: The best mofo margherita pizza ever in existence with double pizza sauce.

    Dessert: A huge mix of classics like strudel, crumble and ice-cream.


    ...I'm hungry now. Think I'll order Domino's. Damn you, thread. *shakes fist*

    OH and the onion rings have to be battered, not breadcrumbed. Forgot that important detail.

    An Indian takeaway, followed by Fajitas, followed by a lovely bit of roast beef, then a traditional Christmas dinner. Om nom. Pudding would be a big bag of crisps and spicy tomato dip.
    My name is so appropriate...

    They are simply called Tapas. Tapas are essentially small appetisers such as chorizo, olives and bread. It can be pretty much anything really.
